Dayton, Ohio

































What are they doing here?















What’s the deal with this place?

Nice pictures.

Dayton seems kind of like Wilmington, to me. It's a nice mid-sized city with a pretty impressive skyline for its size. Dayton seems a little bigger of a city and metro area than Wilmington, from what I see of it. Dayton also has more older skyscrapers than Wilmington, while Wilmington has a nice balance of old, kind of old, and new skyscrapers.

Both Dayton and Wilmington also seem to be overshadowed or even jumbled with nearby bigger cities (Cincinnati and Philadelphia, respectfully).

Great job. Dayton has a reallly nice collection of historic architecture.

From the third floor up, this is a gorgeous building, but what the hell is up with the first two stories?

It's like a mini-St. Louis or mini-Cincinnati. Dayton is looking sharp! Very nice collection of historic buildings downtown, like what most Ohio cities have. BTW, wasn't that KeyBank tower once the headquarters for Mead? I remember driving through Dayton many times seeing Mead on the building. Great pictures. It's also the home of that famous pizza place, Marion's.

Yes, the Mead Tower is now the Key Bank Building. And like Cincinnati and St. Louis, Dayton is one of the older Midwest cities due to the river influence (canals, in Dayton's case).

Yes- I am quite sure that where the Key Bank is - is what used to be known as the Mead Building. Sad to say Mead moved away like so many others are or have done.
